De Ravin, Brosnan, Cooper join 'Me' Robert Pattinson stars in Summit drama By DAVE MCNARY
Summit Entertainment has set Emilie de Ravin ("Lost"), Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper to star alongside Robert Pattinson in "Remember Me," the Allen Coulter-directed drama that begins production in New York on June 15.
Lena Olin is negotiating to join the cast.
Pattinson plays a young man whose brother's suicide has split up his parents (Brosnan and Olin) and left him sleepwalking through life. De Ravin will play a young woman who, after watching her mother get killed before her eyes, seizes life to its fullest. Cooper is being courted to play her father.
Will Fetters penned the script, with a rewrite by Jenny Lumet ("Rachel Getting Married"). Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson are producing through their Underground Films banner.
De Ravin next will be seen in the Michael Mann-directed "Public Enemies."
Brosnan just completed the Roman Polanski-directed "The Ghost" and is shooting the Chris Columbus-helmed "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief."
Brosnan, Cooper and De Ravin lined up Three Join Pattinson In Remember Me
Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper and Emilie de Ravin are in final talks to join Remember Me, the new Allen Coulter movie starring Robert "R.Pattz" Pattinson (don't worry; we'll wait for you to stop screaming before we continue).
The film sees Pattinson play a young man sleepwalking through life after his brother commits suicide and his parents (Brosnan and Lena Olin, should negotiations firm up) split up. De Ravin, on the other hand, is a woman who saw her mother killed but has embraced life as a result; Cooper would play her father. Pattinson and de Ravin form a relationship - but can it survive their respective tragedies?
The film is set to be directed by Allen Coulter, of Hollywoodland fame, from a script by Jenny Lumet (daughter of Sidney, writer of Rachel Getting Married) and Will Fetters. Shooting starts in New York in less than two weeks, so if you're in the Big Apple and you hear screaming in mid-June, don't call the police: it's just the fangirls. Helen O'Hara
